Oscars backstage: Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep kiss at the Critics Choice awards

Sandra-Bullock-Meryl-Streep-Kiss2.jpg Sandra Bullock's husband Jesse James whispered in her ear when her name was announced as winner of the Oscar Best Actress.

Asked backstage what he said, she replied, "You expect me to tell you that? Bless your heart for trying. I'd never divulge what Jesse said unless he said it first -- that's between me and the man."

But she did acknowledge onstage what a great kisser Meryl Streep is, during her hilarious, historic and touching acceptance speech.  How does she know?

The liplock she referred to occurred earlier this award season when she and Meryl tied for a Critics Choice Best Actress award.
